If we are mutuals here, I will probably follow and accept follows of you on @maloki as well.

Question to y'all who follow me and have read some of my writing:

Who'd be willing do support me via Patreon or other similar (Ko-fi, Liberapay) if I manage to write an article of note on a monthly basis?

Anything from $1 and up / month.

Mastodon does no longer spark joy. You’ve felt it, I’ve felt it.

Now it’s time to recognize what Mastodon has given us, but leave it behind. Mastodon has brought us a community and friends we did not have before. We’ve connected across worlds and fallen in love, we’ve experienced heart ache, and loss.

Today, we thank you Mastodon for everything we’ve had, and everything you’ve given. We will leave you here.

My goals are several fold.
1. Keep writing all exams/essays for uni
2. Do well on my Creative writing Project (also uni), which will be poetry (bi-weekly publishing, maybe)
3. Write more blog posts about things that comes to mind

Did you know that when you buy a Bundle through my link you can adjust where the money goes?

Want to give the bigger part to charity? You can do that!
Want to give more money to the devs? You cna do that too!
Wanna give it all to me? You can \o/

They've hidden it behind this toggle:
"Choose where your money goes >"

I feel really broken today... I was sure it was Thursday..

I just misread a youtube title that had Tom Hanks in it as Tony Hawk... >_<

America is the GNU of countries. Completely zealous towards nebulous “freedom” and absolutely unrealistic expectations of how it should be employed

“It’s easy to live free! Just build your own cabin on your own land and protect it with your own guns, keep track of your own money (none of those non-free ‘banks’), and grow your own food, and sanitize your own water!”

what if you're not good OR bad, what if you're just a human being and you've done some good stuff and some not-so-good stuff, but on the whole haven't had much of an impact at all?

BIG IF TRUE?

I think a lot of people get caught up in, "am I a good person?" when the real question should be, "am I making things worse or am I making them better?"

which is ofc a scale, too, but generally we have less impact than we think we do and that's okay. realizing that you're not The Literal Worst or The Literal Best helps a lot.

And if you're from the UK, you definitely want to watch this too (still Akala)

sexual assault 

So many people in smash have been accused of sexual assault or pedo shit at this point that they could host their own tournament after being banned from all the ones they used to be in WITH two sexual assault/pedo commentators to commentate. It’s unreal. And there’s no way nintendo is going to touch competitive smash ever again. Nairo was the one person they officially acknowledged as a competitive smash player and that’s gone now. They will never be acknowledged again. Congrats on ruining peoples’ lives AND your shot at ever being taken seriously. Assholes.

Grim, COVID19 death, but also funny??? Maybe? 

Reporting to work on Monday as a civil servant, being asked to confirm my life insurance beneficiaries. Thinking about who would be planning my funeral there is a distinct possibility I will die from COVID19 because of exposure at work that I'll have a Zoom Meeting Funeral 😭😬😱

If you want to get a hint of how much of your knowledge of history has been white washed, I HIGHLY recommend this lecture with Akala:

I don't have words for these words.

It's so powerful.

If you want a really quick rundown on the issue of Racism, this response in this interview is brilliant:

Yes, the better your fabric or paper mask seals, the more effective it is, but we're talking very small margins. If you want to take the extra time to get that tiny little boost, good on you! But not doing that is not "wearing masks wrong"

Let's reserve "wrong" for people whose masks are not covering both nose and mouth completely, yeah?

uspol +, polyamory 

The city council of Somerville, MA just voted unanimously to remove the limit of two people in a domestic partnership, effectively providing legal recognition to polyamorous relationships.

yesterday: "man, I wonder how much of the corona relief VAT cut will actually go to consumers. it might not be much."

today: hard discounters frantically putting up "we are passing the full VAT cut to consumers" signs

yeah okay in retrospect we should have expected that. german groceries is cutthroat.

My BLM sticker came in the mail today! It's lovely. Can't wait to decide where to put it. www.gdbee.store

Oh, and I need to say this:

I aboslutely love Tor.com 's Newsletters! They are good shit.

I actually want to read their articles.

Today's rest session is including playing Rimworld, but also watching FGsquared's playlist of 1.1 Rimworld
